LETTER FROM THE PRINCIPAL

LETTER FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Our first full 5 day week has been completed and everybody is in their groove. It was nice to see students participate in Spirit Day, see photos below. Also note, there will be no school on Friday May 21st, a teacher work day.
YEARBOOK SPONSORS NEEDED
As announced earlier, all San Miguel students will be receiving a yearbook this year. We have a few sponsors, but we need more. You will have your business card or logo prominently displayed, and you’ll be supporting a great project. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
TRAFFIC – IT IS BETTER!!
Thanks to all of you helping to ease congestion in the parking lot. Walking, parking, and not showing up early has really helped. I do have a couple reminders:
1) Please use the crosswalk to cross the parking lot, it is much safer
2) Don’t forget that the back is open for drop off (please say goodbye to your child when you reach the blacktop), that is also where the temp check will occur. In the afternoon, for pick up, you may walk across the blacktop and meet your child at the fence.
3) Drive slowly, carefully and be patient. We want everyone to be safe.
TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK 5/3 – 5/7
Next week is teacher appreciation week. Say thank you to a teacher in a variety of ways: (click here for the flyer)
Monday: Make, color or bring a flower
Tuesday: Write an appreciation card for your teacher and a staff member
Wednesday: Dress up like a teacher
Thursday: What is your teacher’s favorite ____? Bring them one!
Friday: Donate a school supply for the class or give a gift card.
ZOOM BINGO 5/20/21!
Bingo night will be Thursday, May 20th, at 5:30. We’ll be sending Bingo cards home soon. It will be fun for the whole family! A Zoom link will be sent out soon.
NO SCHOOL FRIDAY, MAY 21
Friday, May 21, is a staff development / non-student day. There will be NO SCHOOL for any grade level. Teachers will be working in their classrooms.
Our LAST PTO meeting of the year will be on Wednesday, May 19th, via Zoom! We are looking to fill the President, Vice President and Secretary roles as our current board members have already served their 2 years. Soooo, if you are interested PLEASE reach out to the PTO! All 3 board members are working moms and were able to do both, so don’t let work deter you from being a part of enriching your child’s experience. email@example.com
A NOTE FROM COACH BRE

A NOTE FROM THE MUSIC TEACHER
This week we held the final Zoom meetings. After April 30, Mrs. Kaufman will begin to collect borrowed instruments and books at each school site. If you have borrowed a school instrument or book, please note the following return dates for each school for students attending school in person.
Return Instruments and Books:
Riebli: Monday, May 3 before school in room 17 (music room)
San Miguel: Tuesday, May 4 before school in room 40 (music room)
Mark West: Friday, May 7 before school in the music room
If a student is in distance learning or homeschooling or if the student is absent on their return date, please return the instrument/book to your school’s office at your earliest convenience in May. Please send Mrs. Kaufman an email to let her know when you’ve returned it. All violin, viola, trumpet, and clarinet students were issued a book that needs to be returned as well. Replacement costs for a lost violin/viola book is $10 and for a clarinet or trumpet book is $8.
A huge thank you to all the brave students who sent in videos for our virtual concert! And thank you all for your patience! Our virtual concert will be released the first week of May. Also, to celebrate after a most unusual and challenging year, Mrs. Kaufman has planned a special virtual field trip for all 4-8th grade music students to see the hip-hop duo Black Violin on Tuesday, May 11th at 2:30 p.m. Save the date and stay tuned for more details! Thank you! Mrs. Kaufman
